Call Windows Taskbar

Hello, just installed the program today so I'm not terribly familiar with the language yet.

This simple code will open up the Windows Taskbar and the right click properties from the Start button:

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
ControlClick("classname=Shell_TrayWnd", "", "Button1", "right")
Send("r")

In Firefox in full screen this is great because it brings up similar to the ALT+ESC keys the Windows Taskbar, which is all I really want. A custom button links to the file with the code. The ALT+ ESC key is not always satisfactory depending on how many windows are open.

What I'm looking for is code that just brings up the taskbar and does nothing more. I don't need the right menu popping up with it. If it's possible, I would like to have the Firefox application tab activated without the Taskbar going back down and reverting to full screen as you'll get with the ALT+ESC key. But if that can't be done then nothing activated is fine. I'm assuming it involves shell_Traywnd.

Any help from the Autoit gurus would be appreciated.

WinActivate("[Class:Shell_TrayWnd]") ?

Simple and perfect, thank-you.
